Judges Can Be Parents Too

A part-time judge may properly participate in a parent's group organized to express concern about the administration of a test to school children, one of whom is the judge's child. The South Carolina Advisory Committee on Standards of Judicial Conduct opines that such participation does not involve the misuse of judicial office. However, the committee expresses no opinion on whether the judge can be fired for his involvement in the parent's group. (Mike Frisch)
